Re: PowerPoint keeps matching keyboard and proofing language

Jonathan COHN
 

I can't really check this as I only have one language installed on my system, but for Office 2016 there are language settings in the setting panel in both the General area and the language area. The general settings is the first settings tab and the language settings are the fourth tab.

Take care,

Jonathan Cohn

Subject: [nvda] powerpoint keeps matching keyboard and proofing language

hi,

I use the turkish keyboard layout, even when typing english. I have an annoying problem. Whenever I type a single character in powerpoint, or in word, the proofing language switches to turkish. I disabled and removed turkish from the languages, and set english as defaults. I also disabled detect language automatically in word. Is there anyhting I can do, other than switching keyboard layouts?

Hmm thats a thought, and low prices on hardware and digital discounts, I guess with all the mixed reality you could still emulate carrying round stacks of coupons and such if you wish and still get the buzz.

Re: My initial experience using NVDA with Skype 8

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


The whole 3 short cut commands were given. I just logged back into skype for web and it is still in beta.


Just been adding more to the tutorial that is the written version.


The camera and mic are up and running also in it. there is no real setting for them at present.

Now i just need to talk to some one but the mic part is crap on my web cam so will try the back one that i usually use.

Plus get some one to make sure with the camera as well that they can see video and hear as well.

this will have to be the web version of skype.


Some body also gave the shortcuts for both the desk top version as well as the app version or you might have to go to the web page.

I wouldn't bother with wix even if I could, but no.

Sorry to be so discouraging, but there are some very easy cms out there such as pmwiki that are so well documented, you can pick up some web design skills by osmosus.

Re: My initial experience using NVDA with Skype 8

 

Well I just read a blog saying they are listening to users, ofcause being microsoft they are as criptic as ever which is a problem for us users.

They do aknowledge though that the new skype has issues and they are improving them, I would just like the old keys and interfaces ported over, but who knows for all we know this is happening to some degree, so we will have to wait for updates.

I think this even covers Skype on older mobile operating systems for phones as well.

Re: Voice settings spontaneously resetting to eSpeak

It appears that the CTRL + N V D A key + C worked. However, I also updated her N V D A to the latest version, so that may have made a difference. The voice confirmed that the settings were saved, and the voice setting stayed with her preference when she shut down and then rebooted. Thank you for the help!

That isn't clear.  If she unloads NVDA and runs it without rebooting, are the settings kept?  Where does NVDA save its settings in the installed version?  We know the portable version doesn't save them in the registry but what about the installed version?  If settings are retained when the screen-reader is unloaded and then run again without rebooting and if the settings are lost when a reboot is done, that implies, at least to me, that settings are kept in the registry and that there is a prroblem keeping the registry from retaining the settings.  We'll see what others say and how things develop.

I have been using N V D A for several years on behalf of a blind lady in Texas, who I now support remotely.

Recently, N V D A has been spontaneously returning to an eSpeak voice instead of her preference, which is the Microsoft Zira voice for the M S A P I 5. I have checked the "save settings on exit" but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

She has a slight hearing deficit that makes it more difficult to understand the "mechanical man" (her term), and has had to have me set it back to Zira several times in the last few weeks.

Is there a command sequence that I can put into a startup file that can force the choice of synth and voice?

Hi,
Depends on manufacturer and model. I’ve seen laptops go under 500 dollars (as low as 250).
Lanie’s requirements sort of reflect what I did last year when ordering a Lenovo ThinkPad. I got a Core I5 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD, intending for software development work and for testing various apps. I also asked for a fingerprint reader and touchscreen for various reasons (in particular, I needed a touchscreen device in order to continue my work with one particular add-on). All this (a custom-built Lenovo ThinkPad T470) cost 1400 dollars. Lanie may have gotten more powerful components and a newer processor than mine, which may explain the higher cost.
As for development work: I hope you can tell us stories of adventures with Windows Subsystem for Linux. Soon, you’ll be blown away by a feature that’ll make some software development scenarios easier (I’ll give a brief demo of that one at an upcoming Accessible World Tek Talk presentation).

Add-on advisory: Resource Monitor 18.04 changes, last version to support Windows versions earlier than 7 SP1

 

Hi everyone,

 

For Resource Monitor add-on users: a few months ago I did announce that I’m gradually removing support for older Windows releases, and the time has come to move on from recently unsupported Windows releases. Along with that, the next version of the add-on will bring significant changes to how Windows 10 releases are detected.

 

Details:

  • Old Windows releases: Resource Monitor 18.04 will be the last version to support Windows releases earlier than 7 SP1 (that is, no more support for Windows Vista, Server 2003 and 2008 after 18.04).
  • Windows 10 release detection: in the past, this add-on used build ranges to detect which version of Windows 10 you’re running. This meant some of you would have gotten a message stating that you’re running Insider build when in fact you are on public build. I found a more reliable way to detect Windows 10 releases (via Registry) so people won’t experience wrong version announcement. This change also allows Windows Insiders to know the release ID for the upcoming release ahead of time.

 

Resource Monitor 18.04 is scheduled to hit the air around March 26th.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: HELP! Windows can't update

Thanks for the suggestions. It turned out that the Windows updater looked
for anything to do with WE. There were uninstalled WE setup files in my
download folder. Deleted them and cleared my recycle bin, and the install
ran without a hitch.

Hmm what I would do, and assuming this program will work is this. Windows 10
is presumably the 64 bit version. What was on the machine previously?

Can you still get back?
If yes then do so, put back window Eyes, and use Revo the old version to do
a maximum scanned uninstall, where it can take away loose registry entries.

if avast has ever been on the system get rid of it with the avast cleaner
program. Do your upgrade to windows 10. Now things should work.
I had both these issues on my now long dead desktop that ran Windows 7 when
I upgraded it to 10. However it failed when it tried to install the first
updates straight after the initial update to 10, so rolling it back was
easy, if a little long winded.
Otherwise you could try removing window eyes and avast if its there in
windows 10 with revo, but I don't know if it can run. Because windw eyes is
32 bit the free old version has no issues removing it.
Avast is still the cleaner program.

Are you definitely sure the problem is the window eyes software? In my case
it was the freeby Microsoft gave away with Office for a while and so I was
surprised Microsoft had not figured out how to remove it properly!

I expect others will be along to suggest other things though.

Afternoon All,
Let's start with the fact that forever, I was a WindowEyes worshiper.
Second, this is not specifically an NVDA issue. The move to Windows ten
went
without a hitch. However, new updates have failed. The problem stated by
the
updater, was that I had incompatible software that the updater could not
remove, and that I had to do this manually. The program listed was
WindowEyes. When I moved to that other screen reader, I did a standard
removed of WE and it no longer is listed as an installed program. Went and
did a computer wide search of as many iterations of WindowEyes and GW
Micro
that I could think up. I did find some lingering fragments of WE and
removed
them as well. Here I am and the Windows updater has the same issue.

The only place I can think of that has WE fragments left is the registry.
Even my nephew who worked as a school tech support person won't edit that.
So much of what info there is about registry cleaners does not make me
smile. I have used Wise Registry Cleaner once and with success. I used it
as
it appeared to be the most trusted by folks writing reviews on line.
However
it is generally inaccessible with two screen readers. I feel that I was
just
lucky the time I used it. Here on the list, members have talked about C
Cleaner, but again the online comments about it and any registry cleaner
are
mixed at best.

There be my problem! Is there anybody out there with a solution that is
nonthreatening to my registry? ?.
Thanks for any ideas and I hope the luck of the Irish will bring me a pot
of
golden assistance,
Rick

Is there any chance that your session will be recorded? Wish I could be there for both. The second is of particular interest as I will be working with seniors starting this spring, and would hope to get family members involved as supports at home.

 

Best of luck,

Rick

Hi everyone,

 

Just to let you know that the NV Access crew will all be off at the CSUN conference in San Diego for the next week.

 

Firstly, if anyone will be at CSUN, do please come and see us!  We'll be presenting in HillCrest A&B on Wednesday 21st at 2:20pm on "Introducing the new NV Access and redesigned NVDA".  Basically talking about what we (and you) have been up to lately and where we're going.  We're staying in the room after the presentation as at 3:20 we're following up with "Choosing and Using NVDA", which is designed to be an overview of NVDA, a bit of a walk through installing it, and a bit of information for those supporting a range of users, from family members, to those with low vision and also corporate and government users.  Aside from that, we'll be at various other presentations and generally be loitering about the hotel, and / or San Diego at large.

 

Secondly, that means I probably won't be on here.  I'll try and catch up when I get back, but feel free to write to me directly if you do need me to see it (I still may or may not get a chance to reply before I get back).

 

Have a great week everyone, and I hope to get to meet some of you before I return!

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hello,

you can use the addon objpad for this:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/objPad.de.html

I have created two issues on github regarding locking and improving review and navigation modes in NVDA. You can find the issues and discussions here:
